By the way affiliate commissions are great only if you can get some referrals (and many cannot). The daily checklist bonus cannot be completed many times especially for members who are not from a tier 1 country, plus the pay rate for the tasks and the matomy / supersonic / tokenads offers (both part of the daily checklist bonus) is not generous at the very least since the same tasks and offers pay more in other sites combined with higher affiliate commissions for offers and tasks than what gives and even without the need of a paid membership. And because I like to talk with real facts if you wish I can easily bring screenshots showing the same tasks and the same offers pay more in another site than what pays
This is what valerie said in the first post exactly in her own words:
'if you want to make money at clixsense and make very good profit, you really should upgrade.
Upgrading does not mean doing nothing. It means upgrading every year, clicking the ads every day as your
time allows, you will in fact make good profits even with 0 referrals."
Until now the only one who talks with specific data about upgrading as a solo clicker it's me and it seems that her conclusion is actually a false one. So please don't try to tell me what valerie is trying to say because I know what I read
It's somewhat funny how valerie doesn't reply to specific questions. As anyone can see there are many specific questions in my previous posts related directly with what she wrote in the first post without a reply. The title and the first post are both misleading in my opinion and it's strange because it was created by a moderator so my expectations were high. Maybe it shouldn't
All in all, I like but I don't like seeing posts supporting unrealistic expectations especially when it comes from a moderator
ptcscrutiny wrote: What Valerie is trying to say is that do not ignore the PTC ads. Many members think its not worth it to click those $0.001 ads. Some don't even click the guaranteed $0.01 ads despite being online and checking their ClixSense account.
While it may not be worth a lot individually, it does add up over time as Valerie points out in her stats. The number will obviously vary according the user's demographic location, like for instance I have so far earned $59.84 from my personal PTC clicks.
Its just a suggestion and no one is forcing you click those ads.

Plus the welcome ad credits while it's a good bonus, it has zero value for those who have nothing to advertise
Now you are just ripping it apart
Like I said, its better to upgrade only if you are looking for higher affiliate commissions or for the higer Daily Checklist Bonus. Don't upgrade just to click 3 extra $0.01 ads daily.
chefkang wrote: 100/12=$8.33 per month indeed, but I'm still waiting to see some examples of those who made $100 per year only by clicking ads after the expenses (if any) have been deducted because I keep looking for them at the forum but I cannot find anyone and I start believing that it's not possible. Actually the examples should be users who are not from a tier 1 country to represent fairly an average user
Because this topic is about the solo clickers, let’s do some math
Upgraded members get 4 guaranteed ads per day instead of 1 that standard members get and this means 3 more guaranteed ads per day for $0.01 each one. Therefore $0.03*365=$10.95 more per year than standard members but they have to pay $17 per year for the upgrade so they will end up with (minus) -$6.05 at the end of the year if they click only all their guaranteed ads. The click values are the same in both cases and so the only way for the solo clicker premium member to cover the $6.05 difference is by clicking premium filtered ads.
Because I really doubt that an upgraded member will be lucky enough to catch about 605 or more premium filtered ads per year it seems for the solo clicker like the upgrade doesn’t really help and actually it will probably lead to a loss.
chefkang wrote: Since you are sure that a serious member can make $100 per year only by clicking ads, I assume that there should be some members who did that. Just give us some examples from this forum to verify what you say and to motivate us because I couldn’t find any.
What I see as a standard member is that I can earn in average around 0.022 (2.2 cents) per day and this is around $8 per year and no I’m not from a tier 1 country
But you are from a tier 1 country and therefore most of the members have fewer ads than you and we all know that the geo-targeted ads pay more than the others. So, it would be interesting to know your earnings after you deduct the cost of the membership and after you deduct your earnings from the demographically filtered ads
And no doubt there is absolutely no way to earn $600 yearly from clicking ads here as someone stated before and personally I seriously doubt that a member who is not from a tier 1 country can earn more than $20 per year from clicking ads after we deduct the yearly cost of the membership if he has upgraded
